Q: I have a bicycle repair and hire business in a tourist area which I set up two years ago after being made redundant. It has gone really well and I am now thinking of branching out into building tailor-made bikes. Due to the specialist nature of this I feel I would benefit from having a website that could promote the business far and wide. However, as I will be using photographs that won't necessarily represent the tailor made products that people will be buying, I am wondering whether I should include any special terms and conditions of sale on my website?
Q: On my first day in a new job my employers had no spare goggles for me to wear whilst handling acidic chemicals, or gave me chemical handling training. My manager just told me to be very careful.

Can my employers sack me if I make a personal injury claim against them?
